National Bureau of Standards The National Bureau of Standards is an integral part of standards evolution. Through its institute for Computer Sciences and Technology. NBS conducts research and provides support for the development of both national and international standards. Another NBS task is to promulgate Federal information Processing Standards (FIPSs). AAll these standards link off-the-shelf commerical hardware and software products from different manufacturers. Two of ICST's primary tasks are to develop test methods for graphics standards and to serve as registration authority for the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
